4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
100th Rating. 2007 Btl. Tart and tangy. Clean but dense mahogany red color. Weird head that lingers but leaves no lace. Nose of fermented soybean, currants, blueberry? Palate is not a pucker bomb, nor does it lack acidity, nice balance. Fig, blood orange, sour patch kids, braeburn apples. Slick richness from the oak. Lingering finish without being overbearing. Balsamic-esque. This beer is what i call the ultimate food beer.

Assaggio da 100ml allo Zythos Beer Festival 2015:
Birra color rosso intenso interessante ma forse un poí troppo levigata, poco entusiasmante. Gli aromi di frutta (prevalentemente ciliegia) legno e latte acido. Equilibrata lungo tutta la bevuta. Corpo medio e carbonazione media.

Reddish brown pour from 22oz bottle from Blackwells. Off white head. Sweet, apple, cherry, musty, and flowery aroma. Taste is cherry, tart, grape, a tad vanilla, and apple. Flows like water, so smooth and delicious. One of the best of this style that iíve had.

This is a very fine beer indeed. There is so much going on when you taste this, itís hard to describe. It has a fantastic aroma, itís sour and sweet, it has good body, and a lovely oaky finish. A real classic, unique in its kind, and no other in the style comes even close.

Sample at wild beer fest. One of those things you always see at the store but never grab. Decent drink. A little on the sweet side. Some tartness lots of fruit. Oak and a bit of vanilla to smooth things out a bit. A little funkiness on the nose.
